Security Lock-box for a Focus.....56K friendly.
I post photos of 100k or less, so everyone can view them.

Here's my final design, and location for the thing. It's a little lock box for mechanics to attach to a drawer of a tool chest. You can store your wallet and other stuff in it while you're working, leaving the tool chest unlocked.

Basically that's about the same use for it here. It's 10"x5"x 1 1/2". My Baretta fits in it, as well as my Panasonic......with room to spare. With the seat pushed backward, it's completely out of sight. I think I can mod the seat slightly with a hidden the seat will lock pushed back. The box would be next to impossible to access that way.

The floor pan is clear of stuff in this location..... just screw it down, with the screws inside the box. The thing could be mounted in a number of places.....this one seems to be ideal.

wow man, that is a really ingenious mod. Very clean too. I'd love to do this to my car, I just don't have the guts :(

That's pretty damn cool, Man. Kinda makes it hard to get to Your piece though, huh?

Here's the deal in this state.....Missouri. It's legal to carry a gun if you have a permit. It's legal to carry a hidden gun in your car, with no permit necessary. Ownership of all hand-guns requires a permit. I'm legal...... is not legal to enter many places carrying a gun. You get searched at the entrance. All federal buildings are like this. So if I go downtown I need a safe place to store the gun in the car, if I need to do business in a federal building. This lock-box is ideal.

It obviously has other uses than storing a gun. The box could have been somewhat bigger than this one......but I had this Mac box. It just required some painting, and some padding to the interior. The top is a piece of sticky-back felt.

ive done a little research and i cant find any way to get a permit in illinois. however, i did read about a loop hole in the system where people are able to carry weapons in specially designed fanny packs. but thats a loop hole, not a legal law and i wouldnt wanna have to explain that to a cop lol let alone wear the fanny pack to carry it.

Finished it up this morning......the bottom of the box is covered with a sheet of 2mm foam. Now since there is limited clearance in this thing, I made the holes at the bottom of a "dimple"....used round-end punch. Then I got some counter-sunk screws 2-2 1/2" long. The heads of the screws are flush with the metal.... and below the foam. I'll cover the heads with cloth scratching possible...

With the rear floor mat in place, this box is completely hidden. [}:)]
